What price education?

Anyone notice lately that the cases highlighted are university students?

Noel tracks down Troll

Do these scumbags think that because they've entered higher education they're superior to the rest of us?

Nice way of going about proving it!

It is understood Mr Edmonds offered to fund the PhD student to research a project into understanding what drives internet trolls to wage campaigns against people they have never met.


I agree with Sirius, nice one Noel. As a friend of someone who suffered from that first hand, that is good to hear.

Sirius, you certainly get this feeling at times. At one time, going to university
meant something special and people looked up to you for having true ability.
These days this is not the case for doesn't everyone today go on to university.
To this end then they can't all have true abilities otherwise the UK would
be literally rocking along - yet it isn't.

    1. They spell it Uni as University is too long to text, and that's all they do these days. The art of writing letters, or face to face conversation has long gone.

    2. After a quick check with the Sinclair Cambridge, 97.4% have useless degrees that nobody wants and can't get them jobs.

The advent of the Internet and rise of the social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook, has allowed reclusive people with psychological and mental conditions to practice, up until now mainly anonymously, what they couldn't outwardly do in real life. It was only a matter of time before it got to the proportions where laws had to be introduced to curb it.

I don't know if it will work, but something has to be done. Trolling is one thing, but don't forget also the use that these sites were put to in last years riots.

The Net itself cannot be blamed for that, it would've happened even if the Net did not exist.

Of course the Net itself cannot be blamed for that, it was the social networking sites via the Web that made use of the net, that were to blame. If the net or the web hadn't been there, the sites wouldn't have been able to operate, and it wouldn't have happened.

Many people use the terms Internet and World Wide Web (aka. the Web) interchangeably, but in fact the two terms are not synonymous. The Internet and the Web are two separate but related things.

The Internet is a massive network of networks, a networking infrastructure. It connects millions of computers together globally, forming a network in which any computer can communicate with any other computer as long as they are both connected to the Internet. Information that travels over the Internet does so via a variety of languages known as protocols.

The World Wide Web, or simply Web, is a way of accessing information over the medium of the Internet. It is an information-sharing model that is built on top of the Internet. The Web uses the HTTP protocol, only one of the languages spoken over the Internet, to transmit data.

Of course they did, but they were not orchestrated in the manner that last years UK riots were, that is the whole point. There is credible evidence that many of the riots were co-ordinated via social networking sites, to alert law breakers where the next event was planned to take place. It was in the same way as illegal raves are advertised.
